Serie Whispering Pines, Libro 1Nonostante il sostegno amorevole della sua famiglia, Lorcan James vuole affrontare la vita da solo e, a ventun anni, si ritrova a piedi dall'altra parte del paese in cerca di avventura. Quello che trova è la disperazione, una disperazione che lo conduce dritto al Whispering Pines Ranch e proprio sul cammino del suo proprietario. L'uomo - forte, arrogante e bellissimo - risveglia in Lorcan qualcosa di cui non conosceva neanche l'esistenza. Quinn Taylor è immerso fino al collo nella seccatura e nella frustrazione di dover fare i conti con un proprietario terriero confinante che non desidera altro che farlo fallire. Non ha bisogno di altre complicazioni, ma quando posa gli occhi su Lorcan il suo mondo si capovolge. Nonostante trovi in Quinn ciò che il suo cuore brama, Lorcan rifiuta di essere il suo piccolo sporco segreto. L'uomo non è però l'unico a cercare le sue attenzioni. Jess, un bracciante del ranch, sarebbe felice di dichiarare al mondo il suo amore per Lorcan. È proprio quello che Quinn non gli offrirebbe mai, ma è il desiderio più ardente di Lorcan.

The Crisis for Young People

by Andy Green

This book is open access under a CC BY 4. 0 license. This book provides an original and challenging analysis of one of the most pressing social issues of our times: intergenerational inequality. Based on recent mixed-method research, it explores the extent and scope of generational divides through an up-to-date analysis of the changing opportunities for young people in Britain across different life domains. A central question addressed is whether current changes are best understood as growing inequalities within and across age groups, or whether we face a genuine intergenerational decline over the life course of this and future generations of youth. Andy Green's controversial manifesto for intergenerational equity includes replacing higher education fees with a tax on graduates of all ages; the introduction of capital gains tax on sales of first homes; voting at 16, and a new charter of rights for private tenants.

Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency

by Joshua Green

From the reporter who was there at the very beginning comes the revealing inside story of the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump—the key to understanding the rise of the alt-right, the fall of Hillary Clinton, and the hidden forces that drove the greatest upset in American political history. Based on dozens of interviews conducted over six years, Green spins the master narrative of the 2016 campaign from its origins in the far fringes of right-wing politics and reality television to its culmination inside Trump’s penthouse on election night. The shocking elevation of Bannon to head Trump’s flagging presidential campaign on August 17, 2016, hit political Washington like a thunderclap and seemed to signal the meltdown of the Republican Party. Bannon was a bomb-throwing pugilist who’d never run a campaign and was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike. Yet Bannon’s hard-edged ethno-nationalism and his elaborate, years-long plot to destroy Hillary Clinton paved the way for Trump’s unlikely victory. Trump became the avatar of a dark but powerful worldview that dominated the airwaves and spoke to voters whom others couldn’t see. Trump’s campaign was the final phase of a populist insurgency that had been building up in America for years, and Bannon, its inscrutable mastermind, believed it was the culmination of a hard-right global uprising that would change the world. Any study of Trump’s rise to the presidency is unavoidably a study of Bannon. Devil’s Bargain is a tour-de-force telling of the remarkable confluence of circumstances that decided the election, many of them orchestrated by Bannon and his allies, who really did plot a vast, right-wing conspiracy to stop Clinton. To understand Trump's extraordinary rise and Clinton’s fall, you have to weave Trump’s story together with Bannon’s, or else it doesn't make sense.

Now, activity at the border draws attention from Kherin Rhylle, the less-favored younger son of the king.

Green, New York Times bestselling author of the Deathstalker series and the Nightside series, brings his trademark wit and inventiveness to his beloved hometown of Bradford-on-Avon, in this charming standalone urban fantasy novel.
